I had just come from singing at a funeral, I was emotionally and mentally exhausted and had some relational drama happening in my life. I called my bestie and said can we go get some comfort food? We went out to eat and she snapped this picture of me at our table. She said, “You […]

Life is so BAD and So GOOD.

February 3, 2024

I sat in a team meeting Monday morning as we gave updates… One teammate is undergoing chemotherapy and was not feeling well enough to attend. Another teammate had a tumor found on his brain and another needs tests for some heart issues. And yet another with a wife who has been dealing with a chronic […]

I’m Still Here

In 2016 I moved to Orlando, leaving all the things I loved, my friends, my family, my church, and my new budding program I created for girls, and I tried to trust the PUSH. The push that comes sometimes in life and you don’t totally understand why, the picture isn’t clear, the future is uncertain, […]

Be Brave

January 11, 2023

I don’t like the word sin. When I found out my baby’s heart wasn’t beating the doctor came back into the room to a tearful distraught woman, he tried to tell me about the next steps and my options. He finished and sighed a deep sigh and said, “can I pray for you?” Full of […]

Really Good News…

Permission to be happy… Several years ago my family moved across the country to Florida, at the time it was a huge step of faith, as Dr. French did not have a job there. We were going to go and “spy out the land” and he was going to keep his counseling practice and job […]

Permission to be Happy

April 17, 2022

I started thinking more about King David, there are so many things we love about this iconic figure. I have been encouraged over the years as I contemplate his life and specifically what he did in the “waiting”.David was a young man, a young boy maybe about my son’s age and in his family, he […]

When it is Time, it is Time… Continued

As I ran on our beautiful pathfinder today, I took in the new sights of Spring arriving. The birds’ songs have become loud and vociferous, as blue jays, cardinals, and scissor tails, swoop, and dance from the tree branches. I heard a woodpecker overhead, a fantastic, intriguing sound, that everyone should get the privilege to […]

When it is Time, it is Time

March 2, 2022

I ran today after over two months of nursing a sprained ankle. If you read my blog “Own your walk of pain,” it tells the whole story. The temperatures turned this week, and it was glorious outside today. Seventy-One degrees and March 1, 2022, I’ll take it! After not running for two months, uh you […]

Necessary Pain

Once in a conversation with Dr. French, he said to me “the point of life is to learn how to DIE.” We are all slowly making our way towards death every day. We will either learn how to accept death and die at peace or we will die troubled. As I am learning to die […]

Death Where is Your Sting?

October 28, 2021

Non-Essential…I run on the Pathfinder Bartlesville, Ok amongst the trees, and realized how much I need them, how they serve me and keep me alive. As I pondered all the ways in which our climate, animals, wind, sea, sky, stars, magnetic poles all interact with each other, I was hit with a truth that I […]
